If there's one thing about the NFL, it's that there are only about two to three gamebreaking RBs. The others are mostly equal and O-line play and opporunity dictate the rest (case of the dropsies notwithstanding). There isn't much difference between Davenport and Parker. Whoever gets the most reps looks the best. Look at my Chiefs - L. Johnson goes down and Ol' Man Holmes steps in a puts up a couple decent games. Then Unknown Kolby Smith looks better than early season Johnson. Look at Ernie Graham of TB, unknown and undrafted and now third in the League in  rushing TDs. How 'bout Kenny Watson? All these guys just needed reps. The only backs I'd say dramatically change a team when they go out are Tomlinson and, well, he might be it.
